Earthworks Plus is a full-colour coursebook for Key Stage 3 Geography, which provides geography departments with innovative approaches to adding literacy and/or citizenship education to their Key Stage 3 scheme of work. The text is part of the Earthworks series, which offers a practical approach to differentiation. Taking an enquiry approach, it provides access to a wide range of abilities and includes local investigation, suggestions for homework activities, class activities and assignments. It follows the same style as previous books, but provides a range of enquiries for Years 7, 8 and 9 which allow geography departments to introduce literacy strategy and citizenship education in Key Stage 3. This should both enhance geographical learning and deepend pupil's literacy skills and their understanding of citizenship.Additionally, this text provides: - approaches to the best of the QCA scheme of work study units - on football and fashion in particular - up-to-minute case study material on the UK, China and Antarctica - investigations of topical issues with a geographical angle such as Internet shopping - climate change - citizenship issues such as how Britain should deal with asylum seekers; devolution in the UK; and getting involved in local community projects
